The Top 5 Scrapbooking Tools That Are
Proven To Help You Create Better Layouts
Tool 1: Paper Trimmer. Clean sharp edges.
When it comes to scrapbooking tools, everyone was in agreement that a decent paper trimmer is a must-have! A paper trimmer will give you a sharp clean cut as you crop photos, cut out frames, etc. A paper trimmer with an extended arm works best; this will accommodate your larger scrapbook pages.
Tool 2: Letter Stamps. Rubber or acrylic.
Every serious scrapbooker needs to have letter stamps as part of their scrapbook tools. Some people prefer the rubber stamp for scrapbooking.
Tool 3: Clear ruler. Marked with grids.
Do you ever wonder why some scrapbook pages look nice and straight while others have layouts that are crooked? A clear ruler will be one of your favorite scrapbooking tools! This type of ruler will help you line up your letters for titles, will make it easy to position photos on your layout, and can help you evenly space out die cuts. Unlike other rulers, a clear ruler with built-in grids makes the job so much easier! You will discover that you have to do a lot less measuring and making marks on your layouts.
Tool 4: Scissors. Office and craft.
♥ Cutter Bee scissors. One of my best scrapbook tools is the Cutter Bee scissors. These scissors are 5″ in size and are great for detail cutting! The precision ground tips make it easy to cut out intricate shapes or to poke a small hole for tacks. I use my Cutter Bee a lot when making greeting cards. The scissors also come with a protective snap-on safety cover. If you are not familiar with this type of scissors, please note that the tips are super sharp. The cover should be kept on them when not in use and place out of reach from small children.
♥ Patterned scissors. Another must have scrapbook tool is patterned scissors. There are several to choose from, but start out with ones that either give a zigzag effect or a scalloped look. You can always add to your collection later on. Having just one or two in your scrapbooking tools collection will be a great start.
Tool 5: Scrapbook storage. Bins and more!
